~OPEN TO STUDENTS IDENTIFYING AS BIPOC ONLY~
An opportunity for Harvard students who identify as BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) to gather together for a session of embodied practice and dialogue. Through the lens of mindfulness, we will be exploring race and race relations along with practical tools that will support us in staying present in the midst of challenging times.

As a registered Yoga teacher and meditation teacher, Abraham teaches in correctional facilities, community centers, public schools and hospitals. He is also a certified MBSR (Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction) teacher and currently teaches Mindfulness classes and workshops at Dartmouth College and Brown University.
